Cyber Crisis Simulator: Digital Tabletops for Global Teams

Go beyond traditional tabletop exercises and put your teams into dynamic crisis simulations to maximize executive training schedules.

  • For boards, executive management, and crisis management teams
  • Pre-built with engaging storylines and media or completely customizable
  • Capture insightful data and actionable results
  • Build muscle memory for better decision-making
  • Browser-based for scalability


Unlike linear tabletop exercises, our simulations reflect how a crisis unfolds in the real world – your teams will never know what problem they’ll face next. Continually test and prepare teams using the latest crisis scenarios.


Out-of-the-box scenarios deliver exercises for numerous crisis types and industries. But you can also customize scenarios by adding decision points (injects) or building a completely new exercise to address specific areas of your organization – ensuring continuous improvement.


Exercise results are scored for individuals and the team participating – including the confidence level for each answer. The results help prove an organization will be ready for a real-life crisis (or that more exercising is required). Track individual and team performance over time to prove readiness and enhance decision-making when faced with a real-world crisis.

Global Reach

Browser-based delivery removes the logistical burden of in-person tabletop exercises. No matter where you’re located, Crisis Sim support for scalability makes it perfect for globally-dispersed teams.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there different operational modes for Crisis Sim exercises?2023-10-05T16:22:10+00:00

Yes, Immersive Labs’ catalog of exercises can run as a single-player, team drills (assigned by roles), or interactive facilitated presentation.

How long does it take to complete a crisis simulation?2023-10-05T16:22:57+00:00

As long as you need! Crisis Sims are fully customizable to suit your unique timescales. Since Immersive Labs’ catalog scenarios have multiple modes, runtime will vary in length. A single player could complete a short scenario in 30 minutes, whereas a facilitated exercise could take several hours.

How does Crisis Sim differ from traditional tabletop exercising?2023-10-05T16:23:41+00:00

Immersive Labs’ Crisis Simulator provides realistic scenarios allowing all team members – individually, collectively, or as a facilitated exercise – to learn and practice responding to crises effectively and realistically. Immersive Labs scenarios lead to specific data output around confidence and performance. Organizations can build muscle memory in key areas of decision-making and understand what areas need improvement with in-depth, data-led analysis.

Are Crisis Sim scenarios current with the latest threats?2023-10-05T16:24:14+00:00

Yes, we consistently release new scenarios based on real-world threats.

What threats and sectors does Crisis Sim cover?2023-10-05T16:24:48+00:00

Immersive Labs’ catalog covers relevant topics like data breaches, ransomware attacks, phishing, and supply chain compromises in the form of exciting crisis scenarios. These scenarios include chatbot hacks, poisoned water facilities, insider threats, IT and OT collisions, and even hospital, university, and vehicle factory meltdowns. Our content also has sims covering several sectors, including finance, government, energy, telecommunications, healthcare, retail, and more!

How does the confidence level for an answer affect the overall score?2023-10-05T16:25:23+00:00

The overall score is adjusted to account for confidence levels.

For example, selecting a “weak” answer with a high level of confidence scores less than a weak answer with a low confidence level. This is because proposing a weak answer with high confidence could lead to the participant improperly influencing others in an actual crisis or implementing the solution without checking with team members – which means exposing the organization to higher risk.

What benefits can we expect from Crisis Sim?2023-10-05T16:26:14+00:00

Benefits include:

  • Making better, more-informed decisions when faced with a real-world crisis
  • Understanding and proving current levels of organizational crisis response
  • Supporting crises simulations for geographically-dispersed and remote teams
  • Continually testing teams against the latest crisis scenarios
  • Tracking individual and team performance over time

Realistic simulation of current threats is the only way to test and improve response readiness and ensure that an actual attack’s impact is minimized. Immersive Labs’ innovative platform, combined with Kroll’s extensive experience, provides the closest thing to replicating a real incident within a safe virtual environment.
